Very easy to make, very rich cookies. One is actually enough! I have never been able to get these to look like spiders, and they make me think of the various "Bird's Nest" cookies. They are fun for Halloween, though! DO keep these in the freezer--they get messy really fast!

hahahahaha I loved these! I dropped them by tablespoons and kinda pinched them together to make round spicer bodies, then I pulled some chow mein pieces out a little for legs. Then I put mini m&ms for the spider eyes. Worked out great! These really made me laugh! Thanks so much.
